ABOUT THIS COFFEE
Brazil is one of the most well-known coffee origins and is the largest producer and exporter in the world. It is responsible for almost a third of all consumed coffee on the planet and is a mainstay for most roasters. While Brazil has several premiere regions to cultivate coffee, much of the coffee is grown in the Minas Gerais region in southern Brazil whose rich soil and climate makes a fantastic environment for cultivation. Due to its lower acidity, coffee from Brazil is universally enjoyed.

This coffee is from Fazenda Santa and is smooth and well rounded. It has low acidity, a medium body with notes of chocolate and caramel. This coffee is great as a standalone, but also thrives in blended roasts.
